Prepare to work safely in the construction industry (white card)


CPCCWHS1001 Prepare to work safely in the construction industry is a nationally recognised certification and is better known in the workplace and industry as the White Card Course.

Participants in the White card course will seek the mandatory work health and safety training required before construction work. The unit requires the person to demonstrate personal awareness and knowledge of health and safety legislative requirements to work safely and prevent injury or harm to themselves and others.

This unit meets the general construction induction training requirements of:

  • Division 11 of Part 3 of the Occupational Safety and Health Regulations 1996 for Western Australia
  • Division 3 of Part 5.1 of the Occupational Health and Safety Regulations 2007 for Victoria.
